that romney said that he doesn't think we should even have a fema at the federal level? well you don't have to worry about believing me or not believing me because you can watch it yourself. >> fema is go to run out of money. some people say do it on a case-by-case basis. some people are saying maybe we're learning a lesson that the states should take on the role. >> romney: absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it to the states, that's the right direction. if you can send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: that is mental! i can't believe he said that! so we shouldn't have fema at the federal level. what would be doing right now hoping chris christie gets it it right in new jersey? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge yo
. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where they're at. they were never used. that's one of the examples i think where fema comes into a state telling the state you're taking them. but we don't want them back. now i don't think that's right. i think that they should have been used somewhere else when needed. but fema didn't want them. they go nope. they're your problem. they were parked -- i don't know for how long. i think they finally got them destroyed because they were never used. >> bill: i don't know anything about that, charles but i do know this. that's not the way fema works today. i think you have to look at the way fema works today and the way it has worked since president obama has been in the white house. again, it is not just me saying this there's been nothing but praise for fema and craig if fugate from repu
. the president was great last night. he said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit, he's been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours and anything that i've asked for he's gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> new york city mayor michael bloomberg last night canceled tomorrow's new york city marathon after the critics said the resources were needed elsewhere, after i tweeted about it. i can't help but think that pushed him over the edge. he said it should not detract attention from the storm recovery and he made news on thursday when he endorsed barack obama for president saying that sandy brought the stakes of tuesday's election into sharp relief. i thought what happened this week and the interactions between the president and chris christy and michael bloomberg are really interesting. i thought the way we think about politics and disaster was brought into re

new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor romney said that -- he talked about not funding in -- guest: governor romney said that, talk about not funding it. only government has the opportunity to provide those services certainly in an emergency like this. fema has to respond immediately. you saw the first responders -- police, fire, the municipal services that have to respond so quickly and so well. our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected communities and the president is responding quickly. he will get back on to the campaign trail on saturday in the commonwealth. let's go back to a lot of what barbour had to say in her presentation. went for barack obama was because they were responding to the bush presidency. during the bush presidency he took eight surplus from a year 2000 with -- took a surplus from the year 2000 and turned it into deficit by imposing the bush tax including millionaires. what governor romney is pr
better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day
for the president>> steve: we saw the president at fema yesterday and if he goes out on the stump latter today and attack romney and starts talking about binders and big bird and stuff that. while tens of millions of people are in harmy way that doesn't look presidential. >> i think he will look presidential. it will be a big moment for the president not only for him but our government and fema to be on the main stage. it is it an opportunity for surrogates to mentioned that romney would eliminate fema. the conventional wisdom. low turn out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is e

jersey, governor chris christie promised help. >> we are working with fema and we have lots of the oil companies... gulf oil and hess have both said that they will deliver gasoline with the national guard and fema to any gas station that is not giving out gas because they are out of gas. we are on top of the gas situation. >> suarez: frustration was also at a boil on new york city's staten island, where local officials complained they've been largely ignored since monday's storm. >> this is america, not a third world nation. we need food, we need clothing. >> suarez: another fight was brewing over running the new york city marathon sunday morning beginning on staten island. new york city mayor michael bloomberg defended the decision. >> it doesn't use resources that can really make a difference in recovery and that sort of thing. it's a different group of people. we have to work around the clock for people to get through this thing, and i assure you we're doing that. if i thought it took any resources away from that we would, we would not do this. >> bloomberg reversed course and annou
say that the same federal government that controls fema that can't preposition gasoline trucks near service station and preposition bottles and mres is the same federal government that wants to control your healthcare. if they can't hand out water bottles on time and properly how do they handle hip replacement surgery? we are watching the incompetentence of the federal government on display. >> sean: you know ohio. i there was with you in 2000 and 2004 and 2006 you have predicted with pinpoint accuracy what has happened in that state. a month ago, maybe it was two months ago you told me barack obama was going to win, ohio. you said that things have now changed dramatically in the swing state of ohio. where do you stand tonight, sir? >> sean hannity, this state has flipped from the blue column not red column for three reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008.
. the house and senate will come in for a pro-forma sessions with no legislation scheduled. fema headquarters held a conference call about the storm. mr. fugate said it has enough money for an initial response to the storm. this is half an hour. >> thank you. good afternoon, everyone. thank you for dialing in today. two main administrators, craig fugate and dr. rick knab. each of them will have opening comments and then we will take questions. please limit yourself to one question and no follow-ups. with that, let me turkish -- turned over to the administrator. >> good afternoon. as hurricane sandy keeps approaching and moving closer to the coast, we are going to be rapidly moving from preparing to support response operations. we have been moving commodities, bottled waters, meals, blankets, cots, and volunteer agencies moving their supplies in. today we have been looking at generator needs. we already had a pretty considerable number of generators and route to the area. these are the larger generators, the type you need to run critical facilities, as well as high water generators you need fo

the coast the president has issued emergency fema declarations for massachusetts, new york, d.c., new jersey, all of the states along the coast. this lets fema coordinate disaster relief effort and take some of the pressure off of the state, off of the local emergency officials. it also lets them mobilize equipment, resource as needed. obviously there is financial help there. if it were up to governor romney, we would not have fema at all. >> stephanie: bad. big government. >> during the g.o.p. primaries there is a clip of him talking to cnn's john king about what we should do about financial issues with fema. >> stephanie: yeah, we have that. >> every time you have an and an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question. what should we keep? >> yes bec
some fun facts -- [♪ fun-facts music ♪] >> stephanie: this is the point of fema when it operates properly when something of this magnitude happens. this is exactly why, mitt you can't privatize fema or second things back to the state. steven colbert said who better to take care of it than the state who's infrastructure has just drifted out to sea. the deployment of national guards included 100 blackhawk helicopters, 573 vehicles, 40 humvees are on the way. >> that sounds like big government to me. >> stephanie: exactly. >> because the state of new jersey just had those lying around. >> sure. >> stephanie: thank you, and what would be even better privatize it. >> yeah. what private company has a blackhawk helicopter? >> stephanie: yeah, after they determine what their profit is going to be. >> there are some entities that are big enough to handle events like this. pretty much the only one is the federal government. >> you can't handle the crisis! >> stephanie: but wait there's more. 500 workers arrived to provide emergency medical care nearly 2,000 utility w
continues to lie to the american people. he was totally against fema, now he's for fema. i also feel that he is very rich. and we have the new york the biggest financial capital of the whole country, of the whole world. new jersey is devastated, parts of virginia, parts of ohio and wisconsin. he's a very very very extremely rism man who pays very very very low taxes and i think he personally should be contributing several million dollars of his own money to help the people of the united states that he claims that he's trying to help. and i think the jeep chrysler ads were just outrageous. i'm disappointed. i'm a senior. i'm 70. i'm on social security. we have worked. we have a lovely little home in cape cod. we did live in new jersey. we're fortunate enough to be able to retire. but i'm really disappointed in a lot of the seniors of this country who are so afraid that they are going to misbenefits and not be taken care of. and personally i feel a lot of seniors are extremely, extremely selfish and fearful. host: let's take a call from the romney supporters line in michigan. caller: just call
, hospitals are taking care of things theywe aro coordinating with fema. i want to thank mr. fugate. we will move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there is going to be soro, you -- sorrow, and you see that. the president has seen that today. that is appropriate. we have suffered from loss. we have not suffered that much a loss of life and we thank god for that. we have suffered losses. this is the worst storm i have seen in my lifetime in the state but we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience we have. we will get up and we will get this thing rebuilt and we'll get things back together because that is what the state is all about. for all of you who are here, and i met a bunch of you today who disregarded my admonition co, at to get the hell out of here, you are forgiven this time. but not for much longer. when all of you look around and you see the destruction, all that stuff can be replaced. you look to your right and left, to your husband, your wife, those are the things that cannot be replaced. i am glad we do not have that kind of loss of life. thank
, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive modernization project where they are going across the country using scientific and engineering models to remap. we had a caller earlier who said that the map was old and out of date. that will not be the case. so there will be changes to flood zones over the coming years if you cannot already had a change. you may have one coming in the next two years. but it will not be the result of a particular storm or particular flooding event. these policies are different than private insurance policies in that regard. for example, if you have an auto insurance policy and get into an accident and make a claim, your insurance premiums going forward may increase because of your history. the national flood insurance program does not quite work that way. in that individual storms or flooding events don't have a direct bearing on your premium. it would only influence the map. if they go in and remap and said the elevation is lower than we
of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. we've just had an excellent meeting with the fema team here and the various agencies in charge including the didn't of the defense and energy that are going to need to respond quickly. we've had a chance to talk to the regional officials of fema as well and i've talked to the governors of the potentially impacted states as well as the cities in the region. at this stage, everybody is confident that the staging process, the position of equipment that are going to be needed to respond to the storm are in place. but as craig has imp sized this hasn't hit land fall yet so we don't know where it's going to hit or where we're going to see the biggest impacts. and that's why it's so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all the members of the team for the outstanding work that they're doing. but the other thing that makes this storm unique is we anticipate it's going to be slow moving. that means it may take a long time not only to clear but to get, for example, the power companies t
have to be fema commander in chief? to harold's point, when he goes back, what kind of events can he do? >> right. >> chuck, obviously, these hurricanes are tricky politics. again, it sounds awfully cynical. people's lives are on the line. but the next four years, where this country goes, depends how the president handles it, how mitt romney handles it. we certainly saw september 15th, 2008, began a process that led to barack obama being elected. you go back to '92. we're florida guys. go back to '92. we all remember 41 was seen as mishandling. >> spokesperson for dade county, i'll never forget her, she gets on, where's the cavalry? it was like boy, there was your headline for the entire country. where's the cavalry? it was a rough moment. >> you talk about another bush, 2005, george w. bush, if you talk to people that worked for president bush, they will tell you the low point of their eight years, it wasn't iraq. it wasn't wmds. it wasn't the horror of all of that. it was katrina and being caught sleeping and feeling like they had abandoned people in new orleans. it impacted them in a

't need fema to come. or a guy in faceless building in d.c., what areas of the new jersey to help tomorrow. we could have locals doing that right now and further into fixing it. stuart: by the way, a couple of minutes, an extraordinary story. we've got utility workers who drove from alabama to new jersey and were turned away. their help was rejected because they weren't union members, we've got the story coming up. i promise you, unbelievable. and coming up 10:45 eastern, the man who might be able to show you where to fill up. his name is patrick doohan with good buddy.com annal' be with us 10:45 and another new at ten story here now. in 2014 you'll have to fill out a brand new tax form so the government can verify you have health insurance. joining us now is grover norquist with americans for tax reform, he's going to explain this. you want to explain this? this is a whole new tax form, it's because of obamacare. what does the government want to know from me? >> well, under obamacare, you have to buy insurance or they tax you. and so, obama has put the irs, internal revenue service, in ch

funding for the storm relief, that was fema and the roads and bridges and there was a bipartisan effort of with peter welch. so i can tell you that i absolutely believe you hear all of this news today on the news folks can't come together. we have come together and we did in transportation and free trade agreements and the training wall and i am going to continue to do that when you send me back because that is my home responsibility >> moderator: mr. hriebman to you have a rebuttal? schriebman: absolutely we need the broadband in upstate new york we need to make a commitment to the public-private partnership. the contras and however brags on his website the funding for their role broadband is lower now than it was four years ago. when it comes to bipartisanship it just isn't there. it's so important as has been renewed regularly on a bipartisan basis and many republicans both like to do that this past year. not, he sided with the party to push for a narrow version that left women out. when it comes down to the issues that matter to folks like medicare the contras and has no record and
'm going to hire a pro no one is mad at fema in 2000. bush, for no obvious reason to me, he decides to put in local cronyism again and let's go back to the old way. they govern. so obama comes back and people are pretty happy with the response to hurricane sandy so far. you always hear about how they don't do a good job. the challenges of being a liberal. and then that romney is on the record saying that any opportunity you can to turn over to the private sector you should do it. >> that is a perfectly legitimate question, especially in the aftermath of sandy. we had an article in "the new york times." big storms require big government. if you'd like to respond to what bill just said. >> yes, i am from atlantic city. i have a brother who weathered out the storm and has his own generator. he is not a survivalist. he is actually a pilot for delta airlines and upstanding citizen who ordinarily tells me that you are an idiot and anybody that doesn't vote for obama is a racist and etc. the last couple of days, he has been ranting about how nobody is allowed back on bulimic cities berrier island

[ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c
